My grgrgrandfather was Augustus J.Reed b 1815 in Washington Co Pa and died Nov 2 1901. In 1828 he was in Louisville Ky where his father apparently died in 1828-1829 and he says his grandfather came and got him and took him to Washington City. On death certificate it states his Father was John Roan Reed.
On March 31 1899 he was interviewed and he said his grandfather John Roane was "Congressman for the Rappahannock district of Virginia" and that he sat at the feet of Andrew Jackson at his inauguration, and was seated by Major Raton, the president's aide de camp. His mother was Martha Town whose father was John.Hoping some of you researchers might know of a connection of Roanes and Reeds, Town.
Hoping someone can help with this interesting problem.
